The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic, referring to the attack on the embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Tehran last February, says that although this incident had many ambiguities and was a personal revenge, we accept that the responsibility for ensuring the security of missions and diplomatic premises lies with the host country.
He added that all countries have a responsibility to protect diplomatic premises and personnel, but in today’s world, such incidents are not strange enough to lead to the closure of a country’s embassy.
